Project NEPTUNES finilized the inventory on what the available knowledge and bottlenecks are around noise from seagoing vessels at berth at the various ports joining the project. Based on these outcomes and the expertice of multiple noise experts we had a productive expert meeting in Amsterdam to discuss the outlines for the Measurement Protocol. On the picture you see the experts who worked on the protocol.

During upcoming months this Measurement Protocol will be further developed and tested by the Project Board. In this way we aim to make sure the protocol is worldwide applicable and usefull to work with.

The project takes about 2 years to complete the deliverables. In these 2 years knowledge will be shared, products will be developed and awareness will be increased around noise annoyance from seagoing vessels at berth.

We had a very good start and making a lot of progress in developing the deliverables and in sharing our knowledge.
